The brisket and BBQ sauce and jalapeño bun were amazing. The line out the door was a little scary at first sight, but it moved pretty quickly.

My friend wanted to take me to a special place for my birthday and she knows that I love BBQ, so she took me to the Hard Eight. I was blown away by the amount of choices. This place gets crowed at lunch so go early or late. However, it is worth the wait. Suggestion: take it slow and ask... More

Based upon TA and local colleagues, I stopped in. The spicy sausage was really good but the brisket was even better. Would definitely stop back when I'm in the area.

I was looking forward to visiting Hard Eight, as it was recommended by a colleague! I was a little disappointed! We shared: brisket, ribs and sausage. The brisket and ribs were just average (above the quality of a chain like Famous Daves, but not up to the standards of Kreuz 's). I did think the sausage was excellent! The flavour... More

The place is incredible. It is a self service which reminds you of your college food service, tray and all. Food is sold by the pound and the menu is displayed in the walls around the open BBQ pit where you have all kinds of choices....all excellent. We told the cook that we were newbies and he made suggestions of... More

This place is amazing. I have taken some of my colleagues there now several times on business trips to Dallas - the line can get a bit long if you hit the peak Dinner hour - 6-7pm, so get there early or late if you want to avoid the huge line. The food is excellent - but careful your eyes... More

The best BBQ I've had. You enter passing all the pits, order and your meal is prepared right in front of you. Pulled pork is the best, followed closely by the brisket. Their BBQ sauce needs some work according to the chef I was with, but I think it isn't needed at all. The place is always packed and seating... More

I was in the Irving Texas area on business and one of my local co-workers recommended this place. When we pulled up the parking lot was full and our stomachs were empty. We thought about leaving and finding somewhere else to eat, but sure glad we stayed. The line moves quickly. When you enter the somewhat open area, you get... More

Here you order your food as you walk in so doesn't bod well for those who like to study the menu. Also you pay by the pound so kinda hard to know how much you are going to pay as the pitmaster piles on the meat as you are trying to get everything you want. That said, the experience was... More
